Rhonda I am so sorry for your loss of your beloved husband Jim to this curse of a disease Cancer. I lost my husband 3yrs. ago on May 5th 2012. He was 65yrs. of age and did not reach his retirement he was looking forward to. We were married 44yrs. I nursed him through the worst lung cancer ever from working with asbestos which took 40yrs. to develop into a terminal cancer which started when he was a young man in his 20's. Such a cruel disease and painful way to die from doing one's job. caring for a family. Going to work each day not knowing what was happening inside his body and how this disease would suddenly claim his life when we least expected it. As widows now our life will meet many challenges we have to overcome without our beloved partner by our side helping us through it. This type of loneliness is one of the worst experiences we will ever face now. Holidays come and go and we face such lonely times without the one who made our life better and gave it meaning and value. We can only face these struggles ONE DAY AT A TIME.
May God come close to you now and comfort you and give you the strength to go on each day.
